  1. The biggest festival of India aka the IPL 2019 starts today, with two of the strongest teams playing against each other - Chennai Super Kings (RCB) vs Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB). Honestly, there couldn't have been a better way to kick-start the 12th season of the Indian Premier League, than pitting Virat Kohli and MS Dhoni against each other. The ground at M.A. Chidambaram Stadium is gearing up to witness an epic match, as every cricket fan is now sitting in front of their TV waiting with bated breath for the clock to strike 8 PM, and people are gearing up to fill the stadium with chants of 'Chickoo' and 'Mahi'. Twitter However, one of the most attractive events of IPL i.e. the glittering opening ceremony will not be happening this year. In the wake of the Pulwama terror attack, where the nation lost more than 40 CRPF bravehearts, the BCCI has decided to pay them a tribute. There won't be an opening ceremony this time, instead, a military band will perform at the stadium ahead of the first T20 match. In fact, the money budgeted for the ceremony will go to the families of the martyrs. Twitter According to the Indian Express, an official close to BCCI said "It's about a 15 to 20-minute show which will happen. The band will perform just before the felicitation happens. The toss is being advanced by 10 mins." The official further added, "the game will begin at 8 pm and toss will be at 7:30. From 7:20 to 7:30 the Madras Regiment band will perform for the audience." Twitter Reportedly, the Madras Regiment Band based out of Chennai will be performing at the stadium before the felicitation programme for the Indian Armed Forces. The BCCI will also contribute Rs. 20 crore for the welfare of the Armed Forces. The captains of the 8 IPL teams have, in fact, pre-recorded a video message for the performance.
  2. It's 1955. The Cold War is in full swing. Thriller writers are having the time of their life. As for the rest of us, the threat of nuclear armageddon hangs over us, like, well, a mushroom cloud. In the middle of all this, the USAF's B-52 Stratofortresses keep making sorties, flying out of bases in the UK, going up to the Soviet Union's border. Just in case… via GIPHY Fast forward to 2018. The world's changed unimaginably. The President of the United States argues with people on something we call 'Twitter'. But the B-52 is still soldiering on, flying missions in the South China Sea, reminding the PRC that the United States is still around, even if it's bogged down with fights over silly walls and whether the President had an affair! The Mean Machine - Boeing's B-52 Stratofortress The Boeing B-52 Stratofortress is a legendary war machine - it's been around for longer than most of us, and thanks to constant upgrades, it's still on the frontlines. © Tech. Sgt. Nathan Lipscomb for US DoD The Balkans, the Gulf War(s), Afghanistan. It's been there, bringing a reign of destruction on people Uncle Sam doesn't like. And it's gonna be around for many years to come... The B-52 project started in 1946 - just after the Second World War ended. The Cold War was starting, and the US wanted something to maintain its dominance. Designed to carry massive nuclear (and thermonuclear) weapons, the B-52 first took to the air in 1952, entering service in 1955. The B-52 Was A Harbinger Of Doom Even though the B-52 was later used with conventional weapons - it was responsible for carrying out several 'carpet bombing' missions in the Vietnam war - it was really meant for World War Three - carrying hydrogen bombs to attack the Soviet Union if the 'balloon ever went up'. via GIPHY One of the bombs the B-52 carried was the B61- which had a yield of nearly half a megaton. Another was the Mark 39 - which, hang on to your hats, had a yield of nearly 4 megatons! For reference, the bomb that levelled Hiroshima was just 20 kilotons. Always Ready As part of Operation Chrome Dome, B-52 bombers were kept constantly airborne - the reasoning being that even if the Soviet Union managed to 'take out' the US's ICBMs on their launchpads with a first strike, the B-52s (and the US Navy's missile submarines) would be around for retaliation. Even better, they could dissuade the Soviet Union from even trying to start a nuclear war. © Senior Airman Malcolm Mayfield for US DoD All That Flying With Nukes Was Risky Did you know that we nearly faced nuclear armageddon in 1961? The US and Soviet Union weren't about to attack each other (though they came close on several occasions in the sixties). What happened was that a B-52 carrying two Mark 39 bombs broke up in mid-air, and the crew eventually bailed out. As it turns out, the two bombs fell out of the aircraft, and one of them got activated - with only one final switch preventing it from going off! The B-52 Even Shot Down A Fighter Jet! You wouldn't imagine a big, lumbering bomber to be able to shoot down one of the most legendary fighter jets ever, but that's exactly what happened in Vietnam back in 1972 - the tail gunner in a B-52 managed to shoot down the newest, deadliest jet fighter of the time - the MiG-21. A one-off? Heck, no! Another crew in another B-52 repeated this feat some days later! Pretty impressive, isn't it? © Staff Sgt. Michael Battles for US DoD This Massive Bomber Might Be In Service For Another 50 Years The B-52, like every other piece of military equipment, has been getting upgrades throughout its life - the last major version first flew in 1961, with production stopping a year later. Of course, it's been given a lot of nips and tucks over the years, with fancy new electronics being retrofitted. © Senior Airman Jonathan McElderry for US DoD That means that even the youngest B-52 is well over 50 years old - but what's even more surprising is that the USAF might keep on flying these aircraft for another half-century. That's right, the B-1 Lancer (a gorgeous machine for sure), the F-117 stealth fighter, and the B-2 stealth bomber came much later, but nothing has managed to replace the B-52! © NASA There's a new upgrade programme on its way, with new engines, and new avionics, and who knows, the next generation might grow up marvelling at this 'Big Ugly Fat F@#er' (the nickname given to it by US troops in Vietnam) which has managed to outlast every other machine!

  4. Arnold Schwarzenegger a name associated not only with bodybuilding but also to the field of acting and politics. Everyone has a journey, and so has Arnold. The journey for Arnold started from humble beginnings. On record, the earliest competition in which Arnold participated and won was the 1965 Jr. Mr. Europe. This competition was held in Steirer Hof Hotel in Graz, Austria. It was the first major competitive win which acted as a catalyst for his career. © YouTube At the time of the competition, Arnold was enlisted in the military as it was a requirement for all 18-year-old Austrian males. He had to work as a tank driver from October 1, 1965, to the end of September 1966, to fulfill his one-year military service. During this time Jr. Mr. Europe was also being held. Arnold knew that the military will never grant him an official leave for participating in this competition. Thus, he went AWOL from his military service basic training despite knowing the risks. After returning home victorious, instead of being appreciated for the achievement, Arnold had to spend a week in prison. © YouTube This was just the beginning of an incredible journey. In 1966 Arnold flew to London to compete in the NABBA Mr. Universe competition. He came in second in that competition, following Chester Yorton. One of the judges of the 1966 competition, Charles “Wag” Bennett saw the potential in Schwarzenegger and invited him to stay with his family. Bennett's concentration was on improving the muscle definition and size in Arnold's legs which was judged inferior to Yorton's resulting in the loss. © YouTube The training by Wag Bennett was successful and led Arnold to become the youngest ever Mr. Universe at the age of 20 in 1967. He went on to win the title three more times after that. Following the Mr. Universe title in 1967, Arnold received a call from Joe Weider who invited him to America to compete in IFBB Mr. Universe being held in Miami and later work with him in California. Arnold always dreamt of moving to the United States from age 10. His dream was finally realized in September 1968 at the age of 21. Arnold arrived in America with only one gym bag, $20 and little knowledge of the English language. By 1970, he had won the title of Mr. Universe, Mr. World and the Mr. Olympia title. The rest is Iron Paradise history. Yash Sharma is a former national level Football player, now a Strength Coach, Nutritionist and Natural Bodybuilder.

  6. The success of 'Baaghi 2' took many by surprise. Tiger Shroff rose as an actor, who did what many could not, and ruled the box office. The film was loved by millions and people were shook seeing Tiger's action-packed avatar. The movie not only earned big bucks at the box office but became the biggest opener of 2018, defeating Salman Khan, Akshay Kumar and Sanjay Leela Bhansali's movies in the process. The CGI work in 'Baaghi 2' and Tiger's incredible stunts created a buzz for all the right reasons. There is no doubt that the actor owns the action space and there is no one who can compete with him. © FoxStarHindi Not many know this, but the actor worked really hard for every stunt and action scene. Tiger is trained in martial arts and most of the times, perform his stunts on his own. He is not one of those who uses stuntmen or body doubles, now how cool is that? For the second installment of the popular franchise, the actor had undergone intense physical training. For the film, the actor learned various forms of martial arts, gymnastics and took special weapon training lessons as well. Believe it or not, the actor shot for the action sequences for 78 days and trained for 476 hours and of course, the end result was remarkable. © Instagram If this was his preparation for 'Baaghi 2', one can only expect it to get more intense for the third part. With an aim to outdo its previous installment, director Ahmed Khan has decided to send Tiger to a military boot camp in Syria, where he will be receiving lessons on artillery training. The director wants more virtuosity and finesse in the upcoming movie. Talking about the same, a source close to the maker told Mid-Day, "Ahmed wants Tiger to be attuned to heavy artillery for 'Baaghi 3'. In the course of his research for the movie, Ahmed found out that Syria has great training camps. So, on his insistence, Tiger will head to a military camp there in November, where he will be taught to use weapons like M16, AT4 and rocket launchers." © FoxStarHindi And that's not it, as the maker also aims at shooting 'Baaghi 3' in Syria. The director has already started working on the script and will be shooting a crucial portion of it in the Middle-East. Well, looking at the present political scenario and the intense atmosphere there, the makers will have to wait and see if shooting will be possible. However, we are sure that Tiger will surpass his own performance and set the bar even higher for everyone else in the industry.
